Metal Inside(r) Home Quarantine is Metal Insider’s new column during this time of isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We asked artists five questions on what’s been keeping them busy ranging from their favorite movies, food they’ve been eating, music they’ve been listening to and more. We caught up with Today Is The Day’s Steve Austin as he’s been spending this time working on house repairs.
What have you been doing to pass time during Quarantine?
Repairing our family cars, generator, dryer, and all the stuff I get behind on when I’m on tour.
Have you been listening to any music or have any playlists worth checking out?
Actually, I’ve been just trying to clear my head and focus on family life. It’s really nice to have both my sons and everyone at home. Most memorable music moment was watching the remastered version of Live At Pompeii with my wife Hanna.
A lot of people have been spending this time cooking including making their own bread, what food have you been prepping during this time?
Eating everything in sight. I had to stop eating because I just went crazy chomping on food it seemed all the time. Thankfully, I have regained control and am back to normal eating.
In terms of entertainment, what movies, TV shows, books, or games have been keeping you busy?
It seems my wife Hanna and I have been watching loads of 1970’s horror films. The Skull was freaking awesome!
What advice do you have for your fans in isolation during this time?
Get done all of the stuff that you normally wish you had the time to do. I’m talking shit jobs. Cleaning the storage room out, service your cars, Etc, Catch up on your personal life. We all devote most of our time to our jobs and careers. Having this time and making use of it by moving ahead through positive changes that need to get done, will keep your mind off things and hopefully make you feel better. You gotta live. You gotta breathe. You gotta know that everything is going to be ok. The sun will rise again. Now’s the time to work on your shine. Love to everyone and be good to one another. See you soon and take care.
